Q.

How do we get affordable conveyancing?

A.

Confusion over this matter catches out many buyers, and can leave them paying far more in conveyancing fees than they budgeted. Many property lawyers advertise cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the terms and conditions that buyers often do not check. Any fees included in terms of engagement should be fair and only come into force where the lawyer must complete additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process. Homeward Legal quotes are not estimates, and offer a clear statement of your legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.
